I only deposited $500.00 about a month ago and I already won over $10K, is 5Dimes going to kick me out?

Well it's not so much that you're winning as it how you are winning. 

If they see a pattern of recklessness from you (Parlays, Teasers, Betting beyond your limit), then they'll wait until you give it all back. 

If they see that you actually know what you're doing (Taking good numbers, betting + money successfully), then they'll probably pounce ASAP.

Simply put.  Be smart about it!

From what I understand, it is fairly common for 5dimes to limit you. There are several members here that talk about it happening to them. If you are looking for a legit, referral only online book with a free payout every week, not every month, add me!

Sometimes the amount you deposit vs. the amount you grow your balance to has a lot to do with it.  If you deposit $200 and then your balance balloons to $5000 over a short period of time, they are more likely to limit you. This happened to a buddy who put in $200 to a popular book and won a bunch of bets bringing his balance to $4200. They ended up saying they would not take his bets anymore.

I turned $500 into $4700 at 5 dimes and received a $50 limit on all action. It is what it is.

I turned $100 into over $14 000 in less than a month on Sports Interaction and they have closed my account.  Spread the word, Sports Interaction is absolute garbage.

They will lower your limits with consistent winning.  Most or the average wager placed through an online sports book is between 50-150 .........and if u r wagering 500  + and winning consistently they will lower over time.....

The main reason is they want equal take on both sides so they can keep pocketing juice which is the bottom line......

With that said if you are a 500+ player and win some/ lose some than they won't lower your limits.

The dollar figures I mentioned are to used as an example based on what I call a casual bettor vs a more serious player.....

You get the idea!

DEVILS should not kick you out of sportsbooks.

5dimes is located in Buena Park, California.

It's interesting that you posted that.

Has someone experienced something similar to this at 5Dimes?

Yep, I just got reduced after getting up over 30k off of $500 buy in and now parlays are reduced to $250-$500 and I can only get a $1,000 dollar bet if I bet single game action. Previously they would allow me to go up to about 2k on parlays and teasers?

if someone is looking for a great sportsbook that wont set limits of how much you are able to win contact me. I have a great guy who has an online site and you wont see any of that bull*hit.

Most won't close your account (although I did have mine closed at betus) - most will just make your limits nothing (got $20 max bet at Intertops, $3 for overnight MLB!) or ban you from the thing that you're good at (like live betting for me at Youwager)

Skybook apparently will...been w them for like 5 years and suddenly about 2 yrs ago they put a 500 cap on all my bets...which was fine because I went to a $1ooo bet on rare occasions during football season and that was on money lines...they were good about withdrawals but suddenly today I called to put more funds in for the weekend and they told me I can't and "they no longer want my business....management decision".    F Skybook....they can kiss my behind.
